For the Pens:

Flyers, Pittsburgh vs Philadelphia will always be the top rivalry by a large margin

After that it varies depending on recent events and how good certain teams are

Rangers - long time division foe, also some real dislike between players and coaches

Caps - Surprised to see 2 other people dismiss this rivalry. Obviously Malkin and Sid vs Ovy is what's hyped now, but these teams have had bad blood since the 90's.

NJ - Seem to always have our number, even though Brodeur hasn't historically played his best against us. Their backups seem to dominate us, however, and Fleury usually plays terrible against them, too.

Isles - This one has potential to grow based on the recent brawl and Isles should start to become a divisional threat

One that I think has good potential depending on how re-alignment shakes out is Columbus. Even though we only play them 1-2 times a year the games always seem to be chippy and intense and Western PA and Ohio have good rivalries in other sports (Steelers and Browns/Bengals and Pirates vs Reds)
